Apartment Complex Bike Room Showdown: ParkMerced vs. Presidio Landmark – One is Heaven, One is Hell

(IMO, poorly-rated ParkMerced (The Mistake By The Lake) should be razed to the ground and replaced with more normal and higher density housing, and that’s pretty much what’s going to happen, sooner or later, so that’s good.)

Don’t get me started about the basements of the high-rise apartments at ParkMerced, and the people living down there (granted, this was a few years back) on mattresses and stealing electricity, and stealing your panties (just panties, thank you, nothing else) from the driers, and stealing bikes, bike parts, etc.*

Storing your bikes in the catacombs of PM, well that’s like crossing the river Styx and entering Bicycle Hell, or at least that’s my impression. As stated, IMO, the buildings of ParkMerced, well, They Should All Be Destroyed.

But what’s this, there’s a dedicated Bike Room at the Presidio Landmark Apartments and here’s what it looks like ?

OMG, it’s Bicycle Heaven!

(Put this setup in the basement of Park Merced and then the Park handtools would be gone in an hour and the expensive tool chest would be on craigslist the next day.)

So this is where your money goes, on stuff like this, when you pay rent at the PLA.

Hurray!

*Uh, Legal, can we get a an approved stamp, you know, on possible defamation issues?

YES, “APPROVED.” LEGAL.

kthx.

    Park Merced should not be torn down down. Tearing things down just to rebuild them is pretty backwards.

    ParkMerced is the Mistake By the Lake.

    Tear down all the units and put in new stuff at five times the density, that’s what ought to happen.

    A compromise plan is in the works – you’ll see….
